Introduction

What is Photon

Photon is a syntax highlighter as a service created by and for developers. Photon transforms snippets in a fast, powerful and very customizable way.

It works on any platform, either using our official libraries or making calls to the API.

Its personalization is based on three pillars:

  • Ability to process a long list of programming languages, markup languages, text formats and others.
  • Uses a plugins system to improve the visual appearance and expressiveness of the snippets.
  • Beautifies the visual aspect using themes, both selected by us and created by you.
